I have heard several conflicting theories about going into starvation mode when someone is not eating enough calories for their activity level. There are people that say this is correct and there are others that argue it is B.S and say that a person will still lose weight even if they are not eating enough calories. What do you think? (I would rather ask a bunch of professionals such as yourselves than read any more comments in a bogus comment feed).
Thank you Ida for your answer. To clarify, I am not saying that I recommend or even practice a starvation diet. The reason I ask is because in several things I have read online people who are very to extremely active and eat a diet of around 1200 calories can plateau- or go into starvation mode, which means the body stores all the calories it does intake. I have read several comments that say this theory is correct, while several others that claim it is a totally false theory.
I appreciate your online coaching offer but I am also a certified Health Coach.
